Quad Roller Skates 

Written By: Brad Wong 



SUMMARY 



This is a simple project that can be completed in an afternoon once you've scrounged up all 
the components. 



Step 1 — Quad Roller Skates 




• Gather your materials, you will 
need: 

• A pair of shoes 

• Trucks and wheels from two 
skateboards 

• 16 each 10-24 flathead screws 

• 16 each 10-24 locknuts 

• 1/8" Aluminum Plate 3"x9"

Step 2 




• To make things more comfortable, 
you will want to have as much 
padding over the screws as 
possible. So take whatever you can 
out of the shoe. 

• I pulled out the inserts and another 
layer that was glued down. Be 
careful pulling this stuff out; you 
are going to want to put it back in 
after your trucks are installed. 



Step 3 




» Put masking tape on the soles so 
that you can mark where you want 
to drill.

• Place the skateboard trucks on the 
bottom of the shoe and mark where 
the holes should go. 

• Make sure the trucks are 
centered and straight.

Step 6 




• Bolt the trucks on. 

• Use locknuts on all the bolts to 
keep things from falling off. 



Step 7 




• You may want to add an aluminum 
plate or some other brace to stiffen 
the bottom. 

• Put the liners back in the shoes.
